Now that Kevin Smith has his troubles with the Motion Picture Association of America and the rating that they wanted to give to his latest film Yoga Hosers straightened out, the writer/director has announced a release date for the comedy – July 29.
Smith has also a promotional speaking tour for Yoga Hosers, a series of one night stands where he will screen the movie and then do a question-and-answer session afterwards. Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of seeing Smith speak either live or in the numerous direct-to-video “Evening With Kevin Smith” releases know how fun the guy can be just with a mic in his stand alone on a stage.
Yoga Hosers is the second installment in Smiths’ True North trilogy of films all set in Canada. With the first installment, Tusk, being a horror film and Yoga Hosers being described by the director as “the weirdest, least appropriate kids’ movie ever made,” it should be interesting to see how the final film of the three, Moose Jaws, turns out.
This isn’t the first time that Smith has toured to promote a film. In 2011 he embarked on a similar tour for his horror/thriller Red State.
Here’s is Smith’s our itinerary –
6/1 – New Orleans, LA at the Joy Theater
6/2 – Ponte Vedra, FL at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall
6/6 – Houston, TX at The Houston Improv
6/12 – Columbus, OH at Studio 35 Cinema & Drafthouse
7/8 – Durham, NC at The Carolina Theatre
7/12 – San Jose, CA at The Improv
7/17 – San Francisco, CA at Cobbs Comedy Club
At a quick glance I am noticing a glaring omission – Smiths’ home state of New Jersey. In fact the whole north east section of the country is being missed on this promotional circuit. (And yes, that includes us here at FilmBuffOnline.) What’s up with that, Kevin?
